Life is full of things we aren’t thrilled about it. Our job is not what we thought it would be; a friend turns out to not be a friend. Life is full of ups and downs. It is just how life happens.
We all want to change one aspect of our lives, if not more. From my experience, this is especially true when it comes to my brain injury.
No one woke up one day and decided to come home with a brain injury. It is life-changing for better and for worse. After the injury, there are things you would like to change.
Change: How to start
The first step in is figuring out what you can change and what you can’t. You can’t fix the fact you have a brain injury, but you can transform how you spend your time or how hard you work during rehab.
At first, you will want to change everything. That is an okay thing. In a matter of seconds, your life is different. It takes time to adjust. You have a new normal.
It is a difficult time in life. Once you figure out what is possible to change, it is time to put the plan into action.
It can be exciting the be ready to initiate a change in your life. But through all that excitement, it is vital to stay realistic and remember that any kind of change takes time.
Patience is key. Persistence is key. This journey requires hard work and continuous hard work. It is also essential to understand that somethings you want to change, you can’t. No matter how hard you work for it, it may not happen.
To make the changes you want, you must start small. Baby steps. These steps will allow you to see progress. Seeing progress will allow you to stay motivated.
If you take anything away from this post, believe in yourself. You can do whatever you want to do.
